    I got mine off ebay, but it's always worth trying the German ebay too www.ebay.de

    You want actual chrome Simon?

    I sprayed mine Avus silver which looks the same as the brushed aluminium ones from a distance. Cost a fiver and looks good.

    It makes sense.

    Have you tried using tin foil?

    Just had a quick look on ebay.de and found the below:

    http://cgi.ebay.de/CHROM-Spiegelgeha...item53dce6f74b

    Not sure what they usually sell for, so not sure if a good deal or not as I bought the complete S4 mirros when I did it, but worth a look.

    In-Pro mirror covers generally seem well spoken of.

    GET OEM BRUSHED ONES !!!!! or imitate them as james has, the effect can be got with the right paint/shade.
    the chrome look way to tacky in my opinion, non oem and more halfords.
    dont bother with after market copies, been there done that !
    ended up buying oem in the end due to poor quality, therefore costing more in the long run
    LOTS DONE, LOTS SPENT !!!!
